Although the UK Government has removed restrictions on 19/07/21, we have decided to retain some restrictions to help our congregation feel safe. This applies to both Sunday and Breakfast Church Services.
Before you come
Please register for the service using ChurchSuite – choose the service from the Worship Services page and follow instructions. You don’t need to have a ChurchSuite account to register. Why are we asking you to register?
Please also take a look at the Personal Risk Assessment which you can use to make an informed decision about whether to attend or not. This is for your use – we don’t need you to submit this to us.
What to expect when you arrive
Wear a face covering
Please wear a face covering when moving around the premises, unless you’re exempt. You can remove your face covering once you’re seated in the church.
More information about face coverings and exemption guidelines
Choose where to sit
The back 2 rows in the church are reserved for those who feel more vulnerable.
These rows are specially allocated to be behind the majority of the congregation and closer to the doors for ventilation.
Cold outside? Wear warm clothes
Doors to the church may be open during the service to increase ventilation. Therefore, please make sure you dress accordingly
Sanitise your hands
Please use the automatic hand sanitisers both when you enter the building and before you leave.
Sanitisers are located next to all entrances.
Breakfast Church (1st Sunday) sit in designated area.
Breakfast will be buffet style, please choose your breakfast then sit and eat in your designated break out area to minimise contact during the Service.
During the service
Maintain social distancing
Please respect that people may not be comfortable with others being close to them, so please ensure you keep at distance between yourself and others.
Please leave at least 1 empty chair between you and other groups.
Congregational singing is permitted.
Please bring your own bottled water.
The toilets are available. We’re operating a one-out, one-in policy, so please ensure the toilets are vacant before entering.
Unfortunately, we can’t accept cash gifts at present. Please use online banking or ChurchSuite Donate for your gifts. Please speak to the Church Treasurer for more details
After the service
Refreshments are served after the service in the Wesley Hall. Please take a seat at a table (no more than 6 people per table) and refreshments will be brought to you.
Please leave by the marked exit
Move away from the doors to allow others to exit
If you’d like someone to pray for you after the service, please ask a steward or the minister.
Why do you need to register for services?
We still have limited capacity in the church so it’s important for us to know how many people will be attending services.
We’re required to keep a record of attendees for NHS Test & Trace. If you would prefer your details are not recorded, please let us know before attending.
Please be aware that if you register for a service and don’t attend, you’re potentially stopping someone else from attending!
